An update from Shaun: Getting ready for bed since I have a 5:30am appointment with my own personal R2d2 (his dialysis machine). Just reading some things on here and would like to thank a few people. Chuck Morro for post me all over the place. Tricia Walag for the bracelets and Eileen Berecsky and Constance Jones for the shirts. Manuel Patrick Flores for donating and just even caring all the way from SC, Adam Sampson for your messaging and helping with other stuff. Everyone else for all the kind words and donations and mostly the support of my family. Anyone else I forget please forgive me.
But mostly I want to thank my wife Tami Alt for being amazing this whole time. She has dealt with this with me like it was her illness. Dealing with all the side effects of medication, my grumpy ass and all the hospital drs . I hope she knows how much I love her and my sister Rachel Isnowa Cosnoski's donation HAHA and setting everything up.From Rachel
: I also just wanted to thank everyone who has helped to support our cause. It's such an awesome feeling when you have people to back you up and are they there for you in your time of need. I never thought I'd be in the position where'd I'd have to ask for help like this. I never thought that if I had asked
...that the people who came foward would be the ones to the ones to put thier hands out with a donation and warm wishes. It's amazing who steps up to the plate when you least expect it. The example I have in mind is (not to single anyone out) Margaret Wise Gillen. A girl who only a year ago who essentially lost her home and everything in it. A woman who with her family had to live in a hotel because of Superstorm Sandy.... SHE was the very first one to step up to the plate and offer what she could. I've been blown away for days. As I type this I have tears in my eyes because I know how hard it is for her and STILL... when she could be there for me....she was. You never really know how someone can effect you.
Since her donation, other donations have been pouring in. Each one bringing us closer and closer to our goal. Although I plan on making my rounds and thanking each and everyone of you who donated and shared my link, I just wanted to say "Thank you" to you all. Each and everyone of you has touched my family in a way that is impossible to express how truly thankful we are. From the very bottom of my heart and core of my being. THANK YOU.
Please don't forget to keep sharing the link, I want this global!!!
